Nano Chocolates that Store Hydrogen

Nano Chocolates that Store Hydrogen

An innovative approach could turn nanoparticles into simple reservoirs for storing hydrogen. The highly volatile gas is considered a promising energy carrier for the future, which could provide climate-friendly fuels for airplanes, ships and lorries, for example, as well as allowing climate-friendly steel and cement production - depending on how the hydrogen gas is generated.

Predicting Battery Failure Helps Millions Maintain Electricity

Predicting Battery Failure Helps Millions Maintain Electricity

Millions of people around the world lack access to electricity. Decentralised solar-battery systems are key for addressing this whilst avoiding carbon emissions and air pollution, but are hindered by relatively high costs and rural locations that inhibit timely preventative maintenance. When batteries in such systems fail, it can be difficult to replace them and can leave people stuck without access to power.

Batteries of the Future Could be Paper-Thin and Biodegradable

Scientists have developed paper-thin biodegradable zinc batteries that could one day become an environmentally sustainable option for powering flexible and wearable electronic systems. The zinc batteries are made up of electrodes screen-printed on to both sides of a piece of cellulose paper that has been reinforced with hydrogel.

Battery Technology Primed for Diversification

To date, Li-ion batteries have been the go-to technology for vehicle electrification and new stationary energy storage systems. However, the supply chain for Li-ion production is coming under increasing scrutiny with bottlenecks feasible during the second half of the 2020s, creating a potential opportunity for alternative battery chemistries not reliant on lithium, cobalt, or nickel.
